Dr. Hench is Emeritus Professor of the University of Florida and of Imperial College London and also holds positions at Florida Gulf Coast University, University of Central Florida, and Florida Institute of Technology. His research work in bioceramics lead to Bioglass, the first man-made material to bond to living tissue and the foundation for the second generation of biomaterials, bioactive glasses and ceramics now used worldwide for repair of bones and teeth and even the active ingredient in a new best-selling toothpaste. He is the author of the children’s book series “Boing Boing the Bionic Cat” as well as many technical articles and books.
Dr. Hench has received almost all the awards in ceramics and materials science that are possible, including membership in the National Academy of Engineering and ACerS’ W.D. Kingery Award. He is also a Fellow and Distinguished Life Member of ACerS.
